The conference was sponsored by the Huffington Ecumenical Institute, an institute founded with the goal of promoting the unity between the Orthodox and Catholic Churches. 

Professor Meyendorff delivered a paper on the understanding of the church building in the Byzantine commentaries on the liturgy, drawing primarily on Ss. Maximus the Confessor (7th century) and Patriarch Germanus of Constantinople (8th century). The conference, which drew over 100 people, was organized by St. Vladimir's alumnus the Reverend Dn. Nicholas Denysenko, Ph.D., who is currently Assistant Professor of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount and Director of the Institute.
